For the first time in five decades the Appalachian Mountain Club wants to build a new, year-around hut in the mountains of the North Country.
It would be in the Crawford Notch State Park and could accommodate about 50 hikers, says Paul Cunha, the AMC’s Vice President of Operations.
“It would be a medium-sized hut located up above Ripley Falls and providing wonderful connections to the existing hut system connecting with Zealand and Mizpah.”
It would join eight other huts, the first built in 1888. The last was Mizpah Springs. It opened 50 years ago.
